I have an uncharacterized discharge from 2000 and I am

I have an uncharacterized discharge from 2000 and I am trying to get a Security Endorsement from the State of Texas. One of the disqualifiers for that endorsement is a dishonorable discharge. However, I am currently being considered for denial since the person reviewing my application admits ignorance to what 'Uncharacterized Discharged' is defined as. In my case, it was due to an ELS. What could I point her to for her to be corrected?

I'm considering joining the Navy Reserves as a drilling

I'm considering joining the Navy Reserves as a drilling reservist (once a month, 2 weeks a year). I am a single parent and am not prepared to leave my son if I receive involuntary mobilization orders. What is the likelihood this type of orders will happen in the next 9 years? And if it happens (involuntary), is there a way for me to decline the orders and not receive a dishonorable discharge? I am a 1315 and have served 10 years, 6 months active duty. I would just like to make it to retirement for the Reserves, but my first priority will be the ability to be present for my son.JA: Are you overseas or stateside?Customer: I'm stateside. I haven't signed the oath yet. I have 1 week until it expires, so I must make my decision.JA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: I'm not in a unit.

I'm 19 years old, I've been in the navy for 11 months and

My name is***** 19 years old, I've been in the navy for 11 months and I'm about to go to a DRB (disciplinary review board) for being caught stealing $87 worth of goods from walmart (lingerie and jewelry). I concealed the items in my reusable grocery bag which I used as a purse. My chief had to come down to the walmart to prove that I lived in the barracks and he was shown the tapes and everything. I was very cooperative. Charges are pressed against me and I'm currently awaiting to go to my arraignment.Before this, I have been an exceptional sailor. At my 6 month long A school I graduated top of my class as ATI Honor Grad, I had over 40 volunteer hours, and I got an outstanding on my PRT. 3 months ago I arrived at my ultimate command; all of my quals are done but I hadn't started volunteering yet. I did just join my command's MWR but did so only a couple weeks ago and have only attended a couple meetings. I plan to volunteer this weekend. My LPO's adored me, as I was a very hard working worker.Knowing all of this, will I likely go to Captain's Mast? Will they look at the things I achieved while in A school or will they only look at what I've achieved whilst at my current command? Will I be separated from the Navy? Would I get a dishonorable discharge if they did? Of course you don't know the exact answers, but if you know of how a similar case turned out, it would help settle my nerves immensely!Thank you

I received a dishonorable discharge from the Air National

I received a dishonorable discharge from the Air National Guard in the 70's. I was was in a terrible car accident and had many operations on my hand. I was on pain medication and lost interest in many things in my life at that period of time. If I recall correctly. I talk to the commanding officer and requested a medical discharge. I had imitated usage of my right hand for a long period of time. I stopped going to monthly drills. My life is very good now, I have to grow children one in medical school and the other working for a large company in NYC. I own a small company with eight employees. And have be a active part of my community as well as a Kiwanis Member for the past twenty two years.JA: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New YorkJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: No not since the 70's,the base is goneJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: thats it
